I GUESS THIS IS JUST WISHFUL THINKING
THAT YOU AND I WILL WITHSTAND THIS
WEAK WORLD AND COME OUT LOVING EVEN MORE
TO BE COMPLETLY FAITHFUL AND TRUE
DISPITE ALL THAT THIS LIFE HAS PLANED
TO FORGET ALL OF THE PAIN OUR HEARTS FELT BEFORE
MAYBE IT'S JUST WANTING SOMETHING SO MUCH
AND NEEDING MUCH MORE THAN I KNOW I DO
OR AT LEAST WILL ADMIT TO MYSELF
MAYBE I COULD CONVINCE MY HEART NOT TO BELIEVE
FORGET WHAT I FEEL SO THAT WHEN IT'S OVER I
ALREADY SEE THE FACT THAT YOU WILL DECIEVE
PERHAPS I FEEL TO MUCH OR MAYBE I EXPECT TO MUCH
FROM SUCH A SIMPLE MAN
DEMAND MORE THAN ANY MAN COULD EVER REALLY GIVE
IT'S POSSIBLE THAT I DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER
TO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AND TURN MY BACK ON WHAT
I CAN TRULY SEE AS SOMETHING THAT IS MEANT TO BE
COULD IT BE THAT I LOOK FOR THE BAD AS NOT TO HURT
WHEN WHAT I WANT IS NOT WHAT I GET
AND ALL MY EXPECTATIONS FALL SHORT
MAYBE I JUST NEED YOU TO TELL ME THAT THIS IS REAL
AND THAT IN ALL THESE EMOTIONS I WILL FIND
SOME KIND OF COMFORT TO PROVIDE ANSWERS
TO MY RESTLESS HEART
PERHAPS IT'S WISHFUL THINKING TO BELIEVE IN LOVE
AFTER ALL THAT I'VE SEEN
I WILL CONTINUE TO BE A FOOL EVER HOPELESS I DO ADMIT
I HAVE SIMPLY FALLEN IN LOVE WITH YOU

A little hard on the eyes to read in all caps, but you know, your words here sting real close to my own.  I can relate to several of the lines.  Admitting, and convincing oneself is definately the hardest things to do.  I know all too well.  Thanks for sharing!  Hey, Welcome here to Passions!

Nice content Rebecca, but I have to agree with Femme but readers arn't concerned with how it may be easier to type. Appearance to the reader means everything. I'm sure you feel the same... Right..?

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)

Rebecca, welcome. . . this was an excellent poem, full of the thoughts that we have when we don't know what the next step will be. . . all I can say is. . .follow your heart. . .

And, to echo Femme and lucky, try not to use all caps when you're posting, they make your poems a little hard to read. . .and since most of us are up late at night reading, we need all the help our eyes can get!!

Rebecca,
Girl, I like your writing.  You don't know how much I relate.  

"MAYBE I EXPECT TO MUCH
FROM SUCH A SIMPLE MAN
DEMAND MORE THAN ANY MAN COULD EVER REALLY GIVE
IT'S POSSIBLE THAT I DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER
TO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AND TURN MY BACK ON WHAT
I CAN TRULY SEE AS SOMETHING THAT IS MEANT TO BE"

I have done this before - and regretted it so. My high expectations have been such a problem for me.  Consider hanging on to him - that special feeling you've got for him is so very hard to come by.  

The truth of this brought tears.

You pose many questions that so many of us have had ... as we fight our "fall" into love ... nicely done Becky!

Best wishes,

Becky~
     Welcome to Passions.   This was a very lovely poem.  I must say, there is nothing like putting pen to paper to let your heart speak for you!

and I am all the better for it~
